New ZP Performance columns designed for racing and street performance customers

Long known for its steering columns designed for hot rods and custom car and resto-mod builds, ididit has launched its new ZP Performance Steering products for street performance and sportsman racing applications.

The initial launch includes two versions, a base model and a Pro-Lite column.

“At just 4.6 pounds, the ZP Base Model, the ‘Pro Fab’ is a bare-bones, no-frills, retrofit column for drag racing and competition applications that has been stripped of turn signals, tilt system and anything else that might add weight or get in the way of getting down the track,” the Tecumseh, Michigan-based company said in its news release. 

“Meanwhile, the ZP ‘Pro-Lite’ is a top-tier, lightweight column that retains all the safety features of a standard steering column to blend function with performance. Coming in at less than 6 pounds, it nonetheless provides all the creature comforts needed for an enjoyable drive with features including self-canceling turn signals, four-way flashers, horn wiring, 3-7/8″ wiring plug and a 1″ 48 lower shaft. It also collapses a full 5 inches for enhanced driver safety.”

Ididit’s Ted Keating noted, “We’ve taken the knowledge and engineering capabilities we’ve been developing in hot rod and custom circles since 1986 and applied them to the street/strip market.”

The company’s news release added that with ididit’s recent acquisition of California-based quick-release steering hub manufacturer Schroeder Steering, the ZP Performance columns can be married to quick-release steering hubs to ease egress to and from the driver’s seat.
